Art, Art, Art Everywhere--Our Visit to the Getty


known as just The Getty by the locals
Is Awesome!

Most of the awesomeness of the Getty is the building itself.  


The grounds and gardens are also striking






From the floor to the heights of the ceiling



We love the Getty

Our two favorite pieces of art work


Specimen (After Durer)


Standing Women I

Standing Women I is one of my all time favorite sculptures.   The use of negative space just takes my breath away.   

Which beautiful spaces have you visited lately?

  2. I also love the Getty. My mom's cousin, Robert Irwin, designed the gardens too! But my favorite is the Villa, I am a sucker for Greek and Roman mythology. :)

  4. Joyous--yes, Robert Irwin did design the beautiful gardens. The gardens are my favorite part of the Getty--so neat he is a cousin. I see also that you are just a stone throws away from me!

    Daisy--did you get your parking passes?
